How Might My Higher Self View the Eclipse?

How Might My Higher Self View the Eclipse?

I’ve been reading people’s “spiritual” takes on the eclipse and they vary widely. A gloom and doom story sent me in pursuit of understanding. The truth is, we assume with our own filters. So I asked my Higher Self for her view as I walked my pup today and this is what I got...

The Answer to a Prayer

The Answer to a Prayer

The answer to a prayer / response to a desire isn't always obvious initially but in hindsight it is totally obvious. I've been giving a lot of thought to how people use the term blessed and this blog offers my 2 cents on how we can fully receive a blessing when it comes our way, how blessings can be the answer to our prayers/desires, details from a blessing that I received and how it can benefit you too if you feel called to read on. Fun stuff!

How Your Garden Reflects Your Heart

How Your Garden Reflects Your Heart

Have you ever noticed how your garden reflects your heart? The connection for me began this morning when I was drawn to this proverb... "As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart." Proverbs 27:19

Foot Washing, Confession and Smudging

Cleanse Your Heart

On Good Friday I attended my first foot washing service. It always delights me when a spiritual/personal growth opportunity comes knocking on my door. This one proved to be no exception.

A Melted Heart is a Happy Heart

A Melted Heart is a Happy Heart

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays because it celebrates love and love is my favorite subject! I find it to be powerful, the only way to go and easier said than done at times. Lord knows I’ve had my share of hard knocks when it comes to loving but forgiveness always leaves me grateful for something I have learned about love.

Setting Intentions Got Me Here

Setting Intentions Got Me Here

I hope your desires for 2017 find their way to you as if on angel wings. It really can be that way when they are pure. 

Unleashing Your Happiness from Within

Unleashing Your Happiness from Within

The other night an old friend asked me if I was happy. Such a core question, and I knew I had a core answer but it's easy to slip into old patterns when in new territory...

How Grieving Opens The Door On Both Ends: A Tribute to Kiara

How Grieving Opens The Door On Both Ends: A Tribute to Kiara

When someone walks out on us before we are ready to let them go, whether it be friend or feline, we experience loss.

It's the day before Election Day. How are you feeling? How can you help to elevate the vote to a healthier level?

Clean & Clear: The Hero's Journey

Clean & Clear: The Hero's Journey

In case you didn’t know, I have a fascination with boundaries. Nature demonstrates deeper and higher truths about boundaries all the time. These truths make practicing them consistently more and more of a no brainer and a whole hearter.

My Political 2 Cents

My Political 2 Cents

If the election has you up-in-arms, it could be because you don’t know how to integrate the relationship between the macrocosm and your microcosm. A shift in perspective can shift you from aggravated to grateful. That doesn't mean you will necessarily end up voting for that candidate who had you up-in-arms either...

I Wasn't Looking For A Dog

I Wasn't Looking For A Dog

Some of you know that I adopted a rescue pup this summer. He was about 16 weeks old when I got him and his name was Inde—short for Independence since they found him on the Fourth of July. I was not looking for a dog...

Maybe It Wasn’t A Woodpecker

Maybe It Wasn’t A Woodpecker

I like to sit at the kitchen table in the morning with my laptop and coffee. Early this spring, while I was pecking at my keyboard, I observed a little downy woodpecker pecking at the maple tree about 18 feet away. I didn't know it at the time but he had an important message for me...

Being of Service to Our Kids and to Ourselves Part I

Being of Service to Our Kids and to Ourselves Part I

Sometimes when I share a story about raising children it raises eyebrows. It’s as though I’m sharing a completely new concept. The sequence of events always seems so logical; even logical, in the moment, to those whose eyebrows it raised.

I think a challenging part of life is being clear about what we are hoping to gain from our efforts. Take a Win-Lose mentality for example. In a world of win-lose, in order for one person’s needs to be met another’s must suffer—if somebody wins somebody else must lose. I see this with parents all the time. When they put their kids “first” by default they sign up to be the sufferer and...

Think Less Pray More

Think Less Pray More

"There are no mistakes, no coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from." ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Have you ever felt like you’ve gotten stuck in a dark hole? That it couldn’t possibly be a blessing?

What story do you live by? Growth or Coercion

What story do you live by? Growth or Coercion

“Only when you recall that you are an immortal spiritual being living in an impermanent body, 
and that you are here on the planet to experiment and learn to create responsibly, 
does anything make sense.” ~Sonia Choquette

Beautifully stated! We tell ourselves unproductive stories...

Valentine’s Day Challenge & Everyday Love Challenge

Valentine’s Day Challenge & Everyday Love Challenge

Valentine’s Day is a great day for tapping into the stream of love and Love. This past year I have focused on my use of the term, love, and I challenge you to do the same. I couldn’t help but notice how freely it is used on Facebook—I’d dare say, ‘in vain,’ even. I was guilty. My attempt to use the term more deliberately and reverently shined a light on where I was using it less so and so much more...

Politeness Made Me Sick

Politeness Made Me Sick

I recently watched an interview on You Tube about “negative noise” that got my hackles up. The researcher was explaining the benefits of periodically distancing ourselves from “negative” friends in our sphere. You may be nodding your head in agreement or you may be experiencing what I did...

Finding the Extra in the Ordinary

Finding the Extra in the Ordinary

What do you think of when someone uses the term extraordinary? 

My dear friend, Bree, recently posted this wonderful passage on Facebook:
